We have temporarily suspended our boat tours due to Lockdown restrictions. We will be re-opening as soon as it is safe to do so and under guidance from the relevant authorities. When we re-open we will have in place stringent hygiene practices including disinfectant cleansing of our boats and equipment prior to every trip, steam cleaning of our boats daily, and hand sanitiser for Skippers, crew and passengers. We will initially be taking bookings for Private Charters only so that you and your private group will not be in contact with strangers. We are available to answer any questions or help you plan your post-lockdown trips via Facebook, Twitter, email and phone. Gift Vouchers can also still be purchased. We hope you are all staying safe and look forward to seeing you again. Follow us on Social Media to stay connected.

What our customers say
Great trip to the Isle of Mann to see the TT, highly exciting and adventurous trip it was, great professional crew and eager to please, well kitted out with waterproof suits and life jackets, definitely not to be missed, I will be back on Abhainn Cruises without a doubt..
Absolutely fabulous trip on the water today. Tim was so accommodating of my sons needs (quadriplegic CP). We all had a blast!!
Thanks once again Abhainn Cruises for an unreal boat trip over to the isle of man TT racing last Saturday morning. Due to the job i do i found them very accommodating as it was a last minute thing on my behalf. Also in terms of coming home it was arranged perfectly as i was able to change my journey times to suit myself without any hesitation and you don’t get to do that everyday. i found the journey safe, friendly and had loads of craic. I would highly recommend it to anybody.
Unbelievable way to experience the water and the stunning coastline! Tim was a legend, great craic from start to finish and accommodating for all passengers! The trips are a rush but the views are something else. 5 star barely cuts it!
Great puffin safari today. everyone really enjoyed the trip.
Ben was an Excellent tour guide, informative and sociable. We’d a fun family day out. Great to see part of the country from a different perspective. Kids were thrilled when he went fast. Everyone in our group from 11-78yrs of age enjoyed the experience. Definitely recommend.
